Reasons why Networks have Failed to Keep up with Cloud Capabilities
Google introduced cloud computing to the industry lexicon in 2006. It was initially defined as computing resources that could be delivered over a network, similar to public utilities like water, electricity, and coal.
Fremont, CA: Cloud computing is comprised of three major components: computing power, storage, and networks. Because computing and storage resources were digitalized long before networks, network technologies have lagged in the cloud era.
Through distributed computing, cloud computing divides and manages large-scale tasks. How is information transmitted and shared? How can computing power be distributed through networks to where it is needed? How can intelligence be extended beyond data centers to cover enterprise manufacturing scenarios? All of the answers to these questions rely on adaptable and dependable cloud networks.
Myths about Digitalization: Prioritizing the Cloud over Networks
Google introduced cloud computing to the industry lexicon in 2006. It was initially defined as computing resources that could be delivered over a network, similar to public utilities like water, electricity, and coal. They are on-demand, pay-as-you-go services that put the user first. As cloud vendors focused on developing flexible computing resources, networks were largely overlooked and are failing to meet market demand.
AWS, the market leader in cloud computing, is also regarded as an IT vendor. IT plays a critical role in the virtualization of computing and storage resources. As a result, when cloud computing emerged as a result of ICT convergence, computing and storage began to advance at a faster rate, while networks were still struggling to meet demand. The last few decades have seen significant changes, particularly with the rise of Internet companies and cloud computing. Telecommunications companies, on the other hand, have remained the providers of dumb pipes. Today's enterprises want highly elastic cloud services, which dumb pipes can't provide.
Most cloud vendors currently offer cloud network services such as traditional private lines and virtual private networks (VPNs), which are frequently chastised for poor network quality, a lack of guaranteed latency and bandwidth, high costs, as well as rigid link provisioning and control. The network's inflexibility of cloud services undermines the basic value proposition of cloud computing.
Although infrastructure interconnection adds value, it is more valuable to transfer cloud computing capabilities to enterprises undergoing digital transformation. This can be accomplished by offering networks as a service and establishing synergies between the cloud, network, and edge.
The convergence of cloud computing and networks drives cloud-network integration. When data freely moves into and out of the cloud, it is up to enterprises to choose whether their data is computed in the cloud or at the edge.
Cloud-network convergence is the way forward, whether computing is used to solve communication problems or vice versa. As a consequence, cloud vendors are shifting to cloud-network integration, which is both a practical requirement and a direct result of technological advancement.
